the clinton administration after the u.s. joined the wpa, but the very controversial farm bill passed. that is the legislation to completely get away with the remaining new deal protections. it deregulated what was our to begun in the 1950s, except all government intervention had eliminated all of the final vestiges of the programs like the grain reserve in the most immediate result after that bill passed, you might remember it, it was called freedom to farm. farmers quickly started calling it their bill. it was the dramatic increase in the production of commodities. because all of the programs that have kept them out of production were now being planned and so by 1999, the price of corn was 50% above 1996 levels. i'm sorry, 50% below 1996 levels. and corn was down 41%. farmers were in economic distress. it was all sorts of pressure on congress to do something. food industry lobbying meant that the policymakers reinstated some supply management and instead congress used taxpayer money to keep farmers afloat so they wouldn't be putting pressure in rural areas on the members of congress
relax, and take your ease, and never order japanese. [laughter] clinton is a bad name. i've often said that clinton is the orange of american presidents. and bill clinton's second term, during the unpleasantness -- [laughter] remember when hillary clinton was said to be taking the lead, she was going appear on the "today" program and everything. i wanted to write a poem about that. clinton wouldn't work. i was forced to use what we used to call her maiden name. i don't think we use that praise anymore or name of origin or slave names. [laughter] and so it's up to -- to prove white house's isn'teded so come. it's left to to show it's dwhra georgia laura. -- [laughter] obama jocks about having a funny name. it was actually a pretty good name to rhyme. unfortunely i used up the rhymes with bin laden, slap your momma. i get worried when they start talking about presidential candidates. i did similar book to this in 2008 called deciding the next decider. along -- we shouldn't be afraid of the word open epic. a poem interrupted by other poems. it's the same sort of book it has prose in it. w
was talking about to manage overproduction. it was during the clinton administration after the u.s. joined the wto that the very controversial 1996 farm bill passed. and that is the legislation that completely did away with the remaining new deal protections, and it deregulated what had already begun in the 1950. it stopped all government intervention in commodity markets, it eliminated all the final vestages of the programs like the grain reserve. and the most immediate result after that bill passed, you may remember it those of you who are old enough, it was called freedom to farm. farmers quickly started calling it freedom to fail. the most immediate result of the legislation was the dramatic increase in the production of commodities, because all of the programs that had kept the marginal land out of production which is really good for the environment were now being planted from fence row to fence row. so by 1999 the price of corn was 50% above 1996 levels. i'm sorry, 50% below 1996 levels, and soy was down 41%. and farmers were in really major economic distress. is so there was all sor
like bill clinton decides to feel like he has the response of the day responsibility of regaining it with dishonor and so he basically sets out to be the person that is going to redeem the family. he's an incredible student, the front of his class, she becomes very active in the boys' nation which is a junior american legion, gets nominated to go to washington as the candidate for u.s. senate. goes to washington. he's already 6 feet tall. he strives to the front of the line when they go to the white house to see president kennedy. and then when kennedy finishes his speech, bill clinton looks forward and get his picture taken alongside john f. kennedy. he is so proud. he's so proud and he is already dedicated to the idea that he is going to be the person that is going to during complete honor to his family. by the age of 17 he's planning to be elected the attorney general of arkansas, then the governor of arkansas and president of the united states. this is something that everyone who knows him knows about and they talk about all the time. it's not from the university of arkansas,
round of death commensurate with the earthquake that bill clinton warned for the ground becomes more significantly more dangerous for disease. the rate can't be bad but it is normally not that bad. floods and landslides threat would be somewhat greater but in march they could mitigate the danger. after returning to new york officials would say this:the ground would soon turned to mud in danger in disease he talked about the approaching rain. there and a race against time. as if they had to have been discriminant panicked need to be created to get aid. some might editors rushed me out to the golf course with a delicate and headlamp and looked like i was entering the delta of. and then a stop to those men playing cards. no mother would want to spend a night holding her crying baby into feats of if -- chilled water. nearly every major ngo signed on to a minimum global standard that people have sufficient covered living space with fresher and protection to ensure their privacy safety and health quote. that that is part of what bill clinton meant that haiti should build back better but re
clinton was not the first were the worst when it comes to this behavior in high office. at least this at least this year, armatures maker, john edwards, david pictures had not been alexander hamilton. if we read letters written by martha washington during this winter camps, she was like a soldier. she didn't complain about the weather, the harsh conditions, but she did complain about the tomcat one winter misbehaving that was greasy and kept her awake at nights. such nickname the tomcat alexander hamilton. because of other young girls that come into camp you are at a book a few years ago called life in the white house and it was about the president, but to date eats, what have they said they have? what are their fears and hopes and what it really can fathers and husbands. how did the kids turn out? are also trying to figure out nixon. for example, nixon and his free time late to bowl a and sometimes wear black suit to do it. it begins to explain things. who does this? so all books and i've been trilogies, so here's the end. so "affairs of state," i try to take a different good an
discussion and greater or concentration. of when i was the point person for president clinton in passing the brady bill which was in the late part of november of '93 and then the assault weapon ban in the house in the spring of '94, it was those two bills that were very focused on criminal access. president clinton's gun legislation post-columbine did not pass. so the notion that everybody should rely on quote-unquote the energy and force of newtown i would caution not to do that. it's clearly galvanized the country to have an honest conversation and look internally and have a serious conversation, but brady bill and the assault weapon ban were done without, quote-unquote, a columbine or what happened in virginia, any of those incidents. i do believe just in the last four years or i would say the last eight years of politics this, what happened there has made all of us have a discussion that has been sitting on the sidelines or the periphery of politics to be focused and this, obviously, tomorrow morning the president's going to introduce his legislation or his package and decide what le
the carter and clinton administrations i was deeply involved in policies between the u.s. and israel, but i also write from the perspective of someone who has relatives in israel, who has spent many, many years in times and israel. so it's a unique perspective, looking from the outside in and from the inside out. >> ambassador eizenstat, israel was one of a few foreign policy issues in the 2012 campaign. mitt romney saying he won't see any sunlight between the u.s. and israel. is the u.s. relationship, and vice versa, a healthy relationship? >> it's a remarkable relationship between one of the nation's that have the smallest majority in israel, and our great country. and it's almost a mystical relationship when you think of how much support we have showered on israel, and how much support we get back. it's due to the fact that this is not just jewish support. we are only 2% of the population in the united states. it's because we have shared values, shared enemies, and islamic terrorism, that many people in the united states view israel as the holy land. not just jews, but not just as well.
the policymakers to take away the right thing. i worked in the clinton white house, and one of the first things they did when he walked in the door was handle memos to the president by charles schultz, which was a nice explanation of economics. we didn't have a book like this to explain statistics. i wonder if there was a book that we could buy 535 copies -- >> if you buy it here you get a 20% discount. in addition to that, what should we do to get policymakers a little more aware of how misleading most of the numbers they get every day are? and particularly the -- the poll results they rely on so much. >> i'm not sure everybody cares. some of it is deliberate. i think the best thing we can do -- when we teach these things we have 0 move away from the mechanics. when i was taught statistics, it was here's how you calculate this test. you don't need to. if you've got a personal computer on your desk made after 1995, it can too that for you. what you need to know is, what you're actually doing. it's like a hand-held grenade launcher. it's not that hard to use. very hard to use appropriately, and
a completely sexual selection called on clinton to either stand up to these people by saying we won't let you leave for suggest or suggestions from the south that he resigned, threats against his life has never seen before in this country. the highest expectations to grow this crisis ever, so i thought since it's been about 55 years since the book was written or such a book was written it was time to reexamine the session which was henry adams, not mine, and i will mention briefly about whether you've gotten a bad rap for his, quote, leadership in this period and of course he wasn't constitutionally empowered. she was powerless and the sitting president was powerless so it was a good situation. but i think that he's been criticized unfairly for not facing up to the crisis. i think that he made the decision that he would not violate the precept of the the republican national platform, that it would not violate six years of belief that slavery could not be extended, and that he simply would not accede to the demands of the southern state which is that he would relent on this issue and allowed s
in the clinton book and it was in clinton's acceptance they had a film in southwestern arkansas and the simplicity of local life and he's from hot springs, a completely different place when with a dark side to it. the obama story is not the ciro and the story of his father takes place somewhere else and that is where the section of the book will start. >> host: one final question. we want to introduce their viewers [inaudible] >> leo you cannot make up. he belongs in an awful. he's 73-years-old triet he walks around with a menacing sort of club, she has a deep voice and laugh and he seems to know everybody in africa from the area the president of tanzania, the dictator of ugonda back in the 70's and 80's to everybody in kenya and he traveled with us. we met him yesterday and had three or four hours of fascinating discussions and then he traveled with us today in the morning and he was jury close to barack obama sr. and the patron and knows all of the political intrigue of kenya, and a lot of the personal promise was barack obama senior. >> was he valuable and? did you have to li
to eradicate coca back in the amazon. and so the last i heard to my think it was president clinton who said -- the da was asking to released this fungus into the rain forest. president clinton said no. the last heard in 2007 was that they're looking into ways of using this fungus as an eradication methods. sounds kind of fd to me, releasing a fungus into a rain forest. but, yes. i think that is an interesting way of seeing how these privileges are afforded to some powerful factors and not to others. >> i would just that quickly, first on the fungus think, one of the great experts in this town was sitting in the audience and is done a lot of research on this issue. perhaps we can talk later. on the question of the u.s. embassy, the u.s. embassy's own website used to recommend to travelers landing in la paz to have copay tea. it is and no-printer. how many people have been? its about 13,000 feet high. the airport which is a plateau above the city is even higher. so your oxygen content at that altitude is 40 percent of what you would have the sea level. he suffered terrible outages sickness. h
to eradicate coca back in the amazon. the last i heard i think it was president clinton who said that dea was asking to release this fungus into the rainforest president clinton said know what time the last i heard in 2007 as that they are still looking into ways of abusing this on this as an eradication method and it sounds a fee to me releasing the funds into the rain forest to see they are some powerful factors and not to others i want to throw them to an estimate on the u.s. embassy their own website use to recommended the travelers landing. in the airport at the plateau of the city is even higher so the lt is about 40% of what you would have at sea level so you suffer terrible sickness and extreme fatigue. you don't want to do anything the first two days unless you can zoom coca product is whether it is chewing coca or having a the candy that is at the airport and that will allow you to acclimate to that altitude and so it is and what you feel when you to the coca. it's what you don't feel. you don't feel ha but you don't feel the altitude and get those headaches and it's a very beni
, last month, took a job as one of mrs. clinton's to speechwriters. so she moved down here into the eye of the new storm and is writing speeches for mrs. clinton. c-span: and you've had a special relationship with president over the years? >> guest: jury special relationship in a sense that we were roommates and partners in 1972 presidential campaign in texas. we live together. and he brought his then a new girlfriend hillary. so we had a very close association then. i didn't see him for 20 years from 72 to 92 until he was elected president and called and said congratulations for your pulitzer in history. i would love to talk to you about how to preserve historical materials and what you've noticed from the presidential libraries you for tin. and on that basis we have talked a good bit while he's been president to renew our acquaintance ship after a 20 year hiatus. c-span: have you had any discussions with him about his whole race initiative? >> guest: absolutely. yes, i have. c-span: what do you recommend to him? >> guest: i think this is a great thing. i personally think from the work
phase of the so-called big deal on the budget. we're of the view that just as it took during the clinton administration, it didn't happen in one fell swoop to get our economy in great shape and move toward a balanced bump started off with three phases. started with president bush's actions, the first president bush, in terms of taxation, before president clinton took office. then the actions the president took in '94 and then in '97. well, we think there's a third phase here that can set our country on a path that will allow us to get our debt, the gdp, our deficit to gdp, down around 3%, which is the basis of which all economists left, right, center, agree, are the areas which we really can begin to grow as a country. and also my grandfather used to say, with the grace of god and good will of the neighbors, cooler heads will prevail between now and the time we deal with the debt ceiling, that we may very well be able to meet the goal which we set out to do, which is to have roughly a $4 trillion cut over ten years, and in the long-term deficit and put us on that path. but i didn't come
concentration. when i was a point person for president clinton and passing the brady bill and the late part of november 93 and the assault weapons ban in the house in the spring of 94, it was those to those very focused on criminal acts nice. president clinton's legislation post-columbine did not pass. so the notion that everybody should rely on the energy and force of newton, i would caution not to do that. it's galvanized to have a conversation internally and have a serious conversation, but for the assault weapons ban, were done with columbine would have been in virginia. i do believe in the last four years, the last eight years of politics, what happened there has made all of us have a discussion and appropriate politics to be focused for the president to introduce this legislation or package undecided what is going to do by executive order. but we are at a tipping point is postponed, delayed or for whatever reason hasn't happened. my small plaintiff caution anything but the last time i had success, goes back in 93 and 94. those were pretty columbine. his entire package fell flat. >> co
was the point person for president clinton and passing the brady bill in the late part of november 93 and the assault weapon ban in the house in the spring of 94, those two those are very focused on criminal access. president clinton's legislation post-columbine did not pass. so the notion that everybody should rely on the energy and force of newton, i would caution not to do that. it's galvanized the country to have an honest conversation and look internally and had a serious conversation. but the assault weapon ban was done without a columbine would have been in virginia. i do believe just in the last four years on the loudspeakers of politics would have been there has made all of us a discussion that is sitting on the sideline to be focused to introduces legislation or package and decide what legislatively he's going to do by executive order. but we are at a tipping point to have a discussion that's been postponed, delayed. but my small flashing yellow light of caution is anything to laugh time we really had success, which goes back to 93 and 94, those are pretty columbine. his ent
to the policymakers. i worked with the clinton white house with the first things they did was hand us a memo to the president by charles schulz we did not have a nice book like this to explain statistics. is a foundation to spend $20,000 buying 535 copies? >> i hope so. [laughter] >> then they would get the 20% discount. >> in addition what should be due to give policymakers a little more aware how misleading their numbers are? they rely on them so much respect i am not sure everybody cares. the best thing we can do, when we teach, we have to move away from the mechanics. this is how you calculate this test made on the desk after 1985 it could do that for you but what you need to know is what you're doing. like the hand-held grenade launcher. we're better off to tell you where not to point* to it is then explain how works. so what makes statistics go off the rail? if you get bad data and put it into a formula that will spell out the most wrong of conclusions. there is a more intuitive explanation, and where the formulas come from. to what we learn the things i have been taught i had to go ba
california. the first george bush from texas via connecticut. bill clinton from arkansas and the second bush from texas. so 2008 in some ways watershed election. ends the 40-year period of sun belt dominance. and there were issues that were critical in the politics that developed, that came out of the sun belt. they tended to have a conservative cast to them. tended to be oriented around issues of strong national defense, of an opposition to unions and a defense of free enterprise politics. and also it's in the sun belt in the south and southwest, that we see the rise of what -- by the 1970s we'll be talk about as the religious right. the rise of evangelical involvement in the process. so national defense, he was a staunch anticommunist and played an important role in right wing anticommunist politics in the late 1960s, one of the things that led him to switch parties in 1964. he was a key figure in opposing labor unions and did so long people like barry gold water. early in his career he was a staunch advocate of unions in south carolina, back in the 30s and 40s, when the union vote was an
. but i was on there. i went through all of those fights. finally it was clinton who made me the chair of the commission. >> president carter appointed you. >> carter appointed me when i left his education, running education. yet in the department of education and i went back to teaching at the appointed me to the commission. >> at what point to become the the u.s. civil rights commission will become a permanent agency? >> after the first year when the reports that they did -- with the commission did was instead of sitting down and saying, okay. we are here as a safety valve and don't really -- they did some hearings. major power that the commission has, and a point this out in the book. to me it is the most important thing about the commission. does what it is supposed to do it will go out and listen to people that nobody else will listen to. problems, civil rights problems that people had that they could not get anyone to pay attention, not just local people but the federal government. it would write letters, do all kinds. no one would pay any attention. the sole rights commission de
to see president kennedy and when kennedy finishes his speech bill clinton lopes forward and gets his picture taken alongside of john f. kennedy. he is so proud. he already is dedicated to the idea that he is going to be the person who is going to bring complete honor to the family. by the age of 17 he is planning to be elected at turner -- eternal jenrry -- attorney general. this is something that everyone knows him knows about because he talks about it all the time. he goes to georgetown and from georgetown he becomes the office candidate for the rhodes fellowship and goes to oxford. he is an incredible success everywhere but he cannot have a sustained ongoing relationship with a woman. he is attracted to the kind of women his mother are the beauty queens who are flirtatious and attractive. that is really where his eyes have been. until he comes back to yale law school. there he meets hillary them. >> you can watch this and other programs on line at booktv.org.
with russia limbaugh, his national show in 1988 and the group from there, in the clinton administration, one of the best things that happened for talk-radio, gave lots of material and continued on and grew as well during the george bush years. a lot of folks thought what is going to happen when they don't have bill clinton to kick around anymore? they thrived during that period. glen beck, sean hannity and michael savage became major national voices in that time period. >> what is the state of talk radio now in comparison to cable news outlets? lot of people have moved over to cable news outlets and become pundits on television. >> in most cases, sean hannity, glen beck, the interesting thing about sean hannity is he is one of the only guys to maintain both a presence on tv and in radio on a long-term basis. glen beck was in cable news for a while, has his own cable network now internetwise but in last long on fox news, rush limbaugh had a brief four year stint on tv but those two guys were pretty much radio, where they get the big ratings. >> fred lucas, author of the right frequency:the st
to other nations, look in that liberal democrats such as hillary clinton in kosovo, serbia and also neocons in the invasion on iraq and most recently the globalized, obama and the invasion of libya. so what my question is, here we have the united states denying the sovereignty of other nations and that i think is a problem of the two parties, both which are socially were parties. >> okay, in my book i distinguish between sovereignty in general, which is westphalian sovereignty, which would be the sovereignty of the burmese junta are any autocratic state and democratic sovereignty, which i call american, but there are other democratic sovereignty states. i make that distinction in the democratic sovereignty is more greater moral authority and sovereignty in general. so the cases you're referring to are in most cases overthrowing autocratic sovereignty. this is also a policy question. at that concerns me with the regime questions of a political science professor, liberal democracy and clinical science are two types. one is regime to close the type of government you have in the form goes to yo
onto the court in 1994. >> correct. 1994 was nominated by president clinton, recommended by senator moynihan. i've been there the last 18 years. >> your subtitle inside look at the life and work. give me a regular day in the courtroom. >> a regular day in the courtroom. there is no such thing as a regular day in the courtroom. we sentence people jail three or four times a week and we have our share of high-profile trials as we sit in new york city. i had a trial and the bear stearns trial and life in new york city is a very dynamic judgeship because we are pretty much where the action bar. i've had cases you name it we haven't. >> how to use separate your professional and personal life? i'm guessing this is a consuming stomach i like to believe i have an integrated life. i'm a musician, i wrote this book at the age of 78. i never thought i would be doing that but the reason i did that is because i really believed that we need more transparency and out with a federal judge is doing and what we are all about. the public doesn't have a lot of awareness or understanding to get the whole
doing the clinton book and what people thought was, because he said it, you know, in clinton's convention acceptance, they rent a film, the man from hope it everybody thought he was from hope, arkansas, this little small town and so forth in arkansas. the simplicity of rural life. and, in fact, he was in hot springs, a completely different place. much more complex and it had a darker side to it. so the obama story is what people do so far is mama sarah and the real story of barack obama, sr. and his father takes place somewhere else, down in kendu bay. and that's where the africa section of this book will start. >> final question. do you want to introduce our viewers to -- [inaudible] >> leo, you could not make up. he belongs in some kind of african novel. he is 73, he walks around with this menacing sort of club. he's got a deep, rolling voice and laugh, and he seems to know everybody in africa. from the former president of tanzania to idi amin, the dictator of uganda back in the '70s and '80s, the everybody in kenya. and he traveled with us. we met him yesterday, had three
fcc officials. reed hundt in the clinton administration, and blair levin spent time there as the national broadband plan. gentlemen, thanks for being here. mr. hundt. your book's subtitle. how can technology fix the budget and help us over the so-called fiscal cliff. >> guest: that is the subtitle and it's a bit of a mouthful. the fundamental idea here is if you spend time in silicon valley, spend time in detroit where the automobile industry is being rebuilt. you spend time outside the beltway you see that america has the potential to generate abundance for its own citizens and for the world. you spend time only inside the beltway it looks like a zero sum game, looks like lose/lose and who is going to lose the most is the gist of the negotiations. so what we tried to say in the book, what are the lessons of the technology sector, that comes from the optimism in the technology sector and how they can give us ideas we can pass into law here in washington, dc. >> host: you talk about two different platforms in your book. what are those platforms? >> guest: the basic id
-called big deal and the budget. we are of the view but just as it took during the clinton administration, it didn't happen in one fell through to get our economy in great shape and move towards a balanced budget. it started out for three phases. started off with president bush's actions. first president bush in terms of taxation before president clinton took office in the action the president took in 94 and 97. well, we think there is a third phase here they consider country on a path that will allow us to get our debt to gdp, deficit to gdp down around 3%, which is all economists are training center greer that areas we can begin to cruise the country and as my grandfather used to say that the grace of god and goodwill of the neighbors, between now and the time we deal with the debt ceiling, we may very well be able to meet the goal we set out to do, which is to have roughly $4 trillion cut over 10 years in the long-term deficit and put us on that past. i didn't come here to talk about any of this important subjects today because as important as they all are today we have a mortgage and
democratic movement that helped elect president clinton. from 1993 to 1997, she served in the white house where she oversaw the national performance review also known as reinventing government. so we're coming up on the 20-year an verse or ri of that. her research includes management, 21st century government, government reform and innovation. and she is the author of "the end of of government as we know it: implementation of the 21st century." and also a book on primary politics and the election process. so, phil, i want to start with you. you have tremendous experience in the private sector. what do you see as the government impediments that keep businesses from growing faster and creating jobs? >> oh, how long have we got? [laughter] >> plenty of time. as long as you need. >> well, first of all, nike was not only the greek goddess of victory, it's a missail that -- missile that goes really fast. [laughter] the bad news about me coming to a brookings meeting for me is that it's a five-hour airplane flight. the good news is that it's a five-hour airplane flight, that i get to sit at 40,00
. attorney general holder served as deputy attorney general during the clinton administration and as the u.s. attorney for the district of columbia. we appreciate the leadership which mr. holder has brought to the department. during his tenure we have seen a renewed commitment to two justice department programs that i cannot resist mentioning. one is the cop hiring grant and the burn justice assistance grant which has strengthened our cities as well. you have, mr. attorney general, have sharpened the national focus on violence prevention, especially among youth, and helped many of our cities to better focus our local efforts to combat violence. i know you are an important member of the vice president's working group, and it is our honor to have you here at the u.s. conference of mayors. [applause] >> thank you. well, good morning. or, i guess, good afternoon. or close. one of the two. [laughter] it's one of the two. thank you, mayor, for those kind words, and it's a pleasure or for me to be here today and a privilege to be included once again in this annual forum. i'd like to also thank ma
